January 2017 Wrap Up

Hm. So I didn’t manage to blog a single book from my January reading. Oops! So I’ll just lump ’em all together in this handy dandy wrap up 🙂


This was my first read of the year. I picked it up mainly because it started with a “Q” and fulfilled quite a few of my Goodreads challenges. Overall I liked it. But it ultimately was slightly forgettable. So I probably wouldn’t be recommending this one to everyone I see…





This was a cute and fun read! I liked it well enough to go ahead and order the second and third books in the series from Paperbackswap. I don’t read a ton of paranormal or cozy mysteries, but this one was an enjoyable blend of those two genres.




This was definitely outside my comfort zone for sure. And I think I may have been more generous than I should have on GR when I rated it at 4 stars. Looking back on it, this was probably more of a 3 star read for me. It was ok, but not something that really did much for me. I didn’t find it as creepy as it could have been…




This book!  I will be singing its praises all year! This one was my first 5 star read of 2017! And I’m kicking myself for not starting this book sooner than I did! It sucked me in from the beginning and I couldn’t get to the end soon enough. I just absolutely loved it. LOVED it. Highly, highly, highly recommended!!




I snuck this one in at the last minute. I can always count on James Patterson for a quick and easy read. This one was enjoyable, but I found the three separate storylines to be a little overwhelming. Why does Mr. Patterson always feel there has to be so much going on? But it was nice to join up with the Women’s Murder Club for another installment and I always look forward to more!


October 2016 Books

Another great month of reading for myself! What a difference it really makes when you read what you want when you want to. That’s been my mantra all year long and I’ve already surprised myself with how much I’ve been reading…

September 2016 Books

Another great month of reading for me! I can’t tell you what a difference it makes to read what I want when I want to! It’s really made all the difference in the world in terms of how much I’m reading as well as how much I’m enjoying reading again! 🙂

What a month I had reading wise!! A couple of duds, but for the most part a very enjoyable month of reading for me!! I definitely was on a reading spree this month! I only wish I could keep up this pace forever – then maybe I’d eventually read all the books I want to, ha!

July was a really good month – five books. And I was really excited that I finally got a nonfiction book in – it’s been way too long since I read nonfiction. Here’s to hoping August is just as good as July!!
